right I have
Stella M Liles . born 1912 Edmonton Middlesex.

Married George E Jeffrey 1938 Surrey.

She had a Son in 1930 Alan Liles in Caterham, Surrey

family has said his father was frank atkins 1910 caterham , surrey. .

but he took his mothers Maiden name. that's why he's "Liles"

I'm stuck as to who Stella's parent's were , i've found a Harry liles from edmonton who married in 1910 ,(which would be Just before she was born making it a possible Father . but how can i find info to back that up to be right or wrong?
